Gaza university will enforce Islamic dress code for female students

DAILY CALLER

The Palestinian Authority rebuked a university in Gaza that wants to institute an Islamic dress code for female students.

Starting next semester, Al-Aqsa University will require female students to dress in a more modest fashion in line with Islamic teaching. Students will not be forced to wear full-length coats or cover their faces entirely, but they must wear the hijab — the veil that partly covers the head. The university won’t expel students for violating the dress code, but will instruct staff to lecture students on the importance of following the dress code.

The goal is to avoid arousing the sexual desires of male students, according to the university.

    I think we should start calling on American feminists and college-age women to wear burkas “in solidarity.”

    Give them a taste of their own medicine.
    (…or, as Alinsky would say, make them live up to what they *claim* to believe in…)

    Are female sheep and goats exempt from wearing burkas or is that just for Islamic women?

    This is exactly why liberals like muslims and don’t denounce sharia; liberal women love the hijab. Have you ever seen Rosa delauro? This gives feminists equal footing. LIberal men love it for the same reason.

    And why is the Palestinian Authoritah rebuking the school? For not being sufficiently fundamentalist?

    Or maybe it’s the opposite, and the government feels it is counterproductive to their effort to move Gaza society forward into the 9th Century.

    Either way, I’m sure the place smells like ass and feet.

    Somebody don’t be understanding the “… arousing the sexual desires of male students …” thing very well.

    Student age males are aroused all the time – by just about anything – a breeze, a smile, alarm clock …

    “The goal is to avoid arousing the sexual desires of male students, according to the university”. This policy will be expanded to include goats, donkeys and little boys.

    When asked if this might cut down on sexual advances by the young arab men, a female udent responded, “Naa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aah.”

    Because young male students’ sexual desires are reserved for the Imams and the wealthy older men who donate to the Unipervercity!

    Multiculturalism and dialogue with the enemy has done wonders for womens rights hasn’t it Barry and Hillary?
    A few more years of liberal policies and women soon won’t be allowed out of their caves.
